I own a scout, I picked it out. My wife and kids loves it. Win win. FWW, I compared scout to other comparable brands. Their build quality and design is among the best well worth a small premium.

Rock hall boat parking

I'm thinking of taking the family there. Is there any place to tie up the boat in Rock Hall while we walk around and grab a bite to eat?
